Pottery Retreats

Pottery retreats at Aura are structured getaways for individuals who are at the beginner level or intermediate potters. These ceramic retreats are typically 10 day affairs, filled with camaraderie, activities, discussions, lots of clay and some fun work produced. A pottery retreat means you spend time with like-minded people, explore your own creativity, get inspired by others, and all along enjoy and learn by way of other activities. Call it a pottery holiday, if you will.

Pricing per person for the 10 day retreat: | INR 84000 | $1140 |

The format of the pottery retreat is roughly an 80:20 ratio of pottery and other activities. For instance, you could have yoga in the morning, a dance movement therapy session in the afternoon, and a screening of a film on pottery in the evening. Someone could pop in to teach you how to make henna tattoos, or you could do a batik and indigo dyeing workshop one afternoon. The idea is to have a rich experience at Aura which will help you discover yourself a little more.
